Zambezi Lifestyles Camp

Zambezi Lifestyles Camp is situated in a lovely position alongside the Zambezi River in the heart of the Mana Pools National Park, this traditional mobile camp provides an unusually authentic safari experience and has a lovely intimate atmosphere. High quality guided activities include vehicle safaris, canoe safaris and walking safaris.

The legendary Mana Pools is known for its wildlife rich flood plains and magnificent views of the Zambezi River. The river boasts of some of Africa’s most amazing tiger fishing and adventure canoeing safaris, creating the perfect combination of beauty and fun and making this World Heritage site a must-visit national park.

Zambezi Life Styles is a mobile camp which actually has to move between various campsites every few weeks in order to comply with park regulations, but in all cases it is in a lovely riverside position under the shade of winterthorn and ebony trees on the southern bank of the Zambezi River, in the heart of the reserve.

Guest accommodation is in six small-sized Meru tents, with director’s chairs out front, comfortable beds inside the main tent area and an outdoor bathroom out back, with a conventionally plumbed toilet, traditional safari hand-basins and a bucket shower, with hot water being fetched on request. These rooms may look simple by comparison with those in modern safari camps, but they are properly function, sealed against insects and with lots of ventilation. If only the bathrooms were inside, then they would be our idea of safari perfection.

Dining & Entertainment

Meals here are usually served around a single table, in traditional safari camp style. The hosting here tends to be quite modest, with little variation in terms of special meals or locations. But the food quality is universally praised, you will hopefully be amazed at the level of food which can be produced from such basic kitchens, these chefs really are superstars. Special diets such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free are no problem, so long as you let us know at the time of booking.


At 2045 square kilometres, Mana Pools is a good sized national park which is a very significant part of a much larger trans-frontier wilderness area here in the Zambezi valley. It is just across the river from the lesser known but equally impressive Lower Zambezi across in Zambia.

The area is very rich in wildlife, especially Jul/Oct, with the key river-front areas having particularly good densities of elephants, wild-dogs, lions, leopards and a wide range of other animals. Birding is also very strong. The area contains a number of wonderfully earthy old-style safari camps which are particularly renowned for excellent canoe safari and walking safari.
